Default Zebra Crossing to Nowhere

I was wondering why I always take tooo much time crossing the road at this place. Till I realised that at one one of the crossing, there is no access to the foot path.

Where does the far end of this zebra crossing end?

Certainly not the foot path.

Do not ask me what the authorities / adguys or whoever in charge (if any) of putting up the barricades had in mind while putting up the barricates at the far end. Nearest access to the foot path on the far end is about 9 meters to the right of the tree you see.

Access to the foot path can be seen in this pic - see the man in white and light blue striped tee shirt at far right in the pic.

The right side of the pic is the stop for long distance buses towards North going out of the city. Other side of the far side foot path is the bus stop for short distance / city buses. So, this is a place with very heavy pedestrian and vehicle traffic.

The location is Kaloor bus stand, Ernakulam. The bus stand is behind the camera. Sorry that I could not get a better pic - I spent about 30 minutes getting a person free and vehicle free frame. And it taken from a mobile; and preview was difficult since it was day time.

All I can say is grrr.... and

Guess the zebra crossing is a assembly point for rasta roko kind of activities then.
Who uses zebra crossings anyway? Jaywalking is the trend!
